    The people of West Virginia have shown their devotion to the culture of life by voting to end taxpayer funding of abortion in the state, said Baltimore Archbishop William Lori, who is apostolic administrator of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston. Voters approved Amendment 1, which adds to the state constitution: “Nothing in this constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of abortion.” “West Virginians told lawmakers that they stand for life through the passage of Amendment 1,” the archbishop said. “Their voices put an end to decades of taxpayer-funded abortions through Medicaid that have resulted in...

    Silicon Valley is in thrall to the cult of diversity. Its measures its employees against racial metrics even as an industry, whose engine is meant to be the intellect, purges any hint of intellectual diversity. It happened at Mozilla with Brendan Eich, the creator of Javascript. It happened at Google with James Damore. Now it happened at Facebook with Palmer Luckey. Luckey's Oculus fueled the race for virtual reality. Facebook bought his company for a fortune. And then it forced him out because he supported Trump and opposed Hillary.

    Progressive pundit Cenk Uygur argued recently the Bible is pro-abortion. The founder of The Young Turks — a far-left outlet — employed a passage from the Old Testament to make his case. Uygur, taking Numbers 5 out of context, claimed it’s “a fact” Scripture endorses abortion. “You’re wrong about your Bible,” he said, speaking to Christians. “You’ve been misled; you’ve been lied to. Your religious and political leaders have kept you in ignorance. The Bible is actually pro-abortion — that’s a fact.” Uygur went on to suggest abortion has never been a religious issue. “It was never about the Bible,”...

    A Kenyan abortionist whom African media calls a “quack” and a “fake doctor” is officially a wanted man, for allegations of running an illegal abortion facility and even committing sexual assault against his patients while they were sedated. James Mugo Ndichu, also known as Mugo Wa Wairimu, was accused three years ago of raping his patients, so he abandoned his former facility and moved to another one, where authorities believe the abortionist has continued with his criminal ways. “We are looking for Mr Wairimu and we ask him to present himself to the police for questioning,” said Musa Yego, boss...

    The legal fight over a 2016 lower court ruling upholding Obama-era net neutrality regulations aimed at ensuring a free and open internet - rules that have since been repealed by President Donald Trump’s administration - came to a formal end on Monday, with the U.S. Supreme Court declining to take up the matter. The Trump administration and internet service providers had asked to justices to wipe away the ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit that had temporarily preserved the net neutrality regulations championed by Democratic former President Barack Obama. But the justices refused...

    Democratic congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema has emerged victorious in Arizona’s hotly contested Senate battle, helping her party make gains in the upper chamber of Congress. Following a hotly contested race where both candidates lead in differing polls, Sinema — Arizona’s 9th Congressional District representative — has defeated Republican congresswoman Martha McSally after nearly a week since Election Day. The back-and-forth election saw both candidates take the lead at different times before the November elections. McSally trailed Sinema for much of the beginning of the campaign, but saw her numbers rise after Sinema — a former activist against the Iraq and Afghanistan...

    When America's powerful pro-gun group told doctors to mind their own business, the response was swift, furious and viral. "Unless you've had someone's heart stop beating in your hands, you don't get to tell those of us who have what is and is not our 'lane'," trauma surgeon David Morris, 42, told the BBC. The National Rifle Association's tweet on Wednesday sparked anger. It came just hours before a gunman killed 12 people in a California bar. "Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane," the NRA tweeted.

    A horrible new ad created for the abortion giant Planned Parenthood uses an adorable baby girl with big eyes and precious smile to advocate for abortion on demand. The 40-second video, “The Chosen,” was created by the Agenda Project, a pro-abortion advocacy group, to promote the abortion giant Planned Parenthood. In the video, the baby girl smiles and coos among soft, white blankets while a lullaby plays in the background. “She deserves to be loved,” the ad says, between clips of the smiling infant. “She deserves to be wanted. She deserves to be a choice.” It ends by urging people...

    In this election abortion ballot measures appeared in two states. In West Virginia, voters approved a constitutional amendment with the following wording: “Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of abortion.” In Oregon, voters defeated a measure that banned taxpayers funding of elective abortions. Oregon is one of 17 states that forces taxpayers to fund elective abortions. Because the state has no abortion restrictions, tax dollars pay for unborn babies to be aborted for any reason up to the moment before birth. In 2017, Gov. Kate Brown (D) signed a bill expanding...

    California is a place unlike any other on the Globe. It boasts perhaps the greatest natural resources of any state along with shining high-tech industries. However, like many good economic stories, government policies threaten its future. Indeed, its government has made California unsustainable. Of course, it wasn’t always this way. As the 1960s came to a close in California, it had a population of nearly twenty million. In the decade before, its economic strength afforded the construction of a vast State Water Project and higher education system that was the envy of the world. Matched with a majestic and trade...

November 9, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – There’s missing the point, there’s shooting yourself in the foot, and then there’s the Agenda Project. That’s the left-wing advocacy group best known for the infamous 2011 commercial about Paul Ryan pushing grannies in wheelchairs off of cliffs. Believe it or not, ChoiceForTwo founder and director Laura Klassen discovered this week that that the AP actually managed to outdo that classic in 2015.

    It’s one of the most sacrilegious acts a religious leader could perform, but it’s happening again — this time in Columbus, Ohio. Tonight, the the so-called Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice is planning a “blessing” of a local abortion clinic. This appears to be a response to the closing ceremony of the 40 Days for Life campaign where pro-life advocates pray outside abortion facilities worldwide and offer practical pregnancy help and support for women. Originally, the blessing was supposed to take place at a Planned Parenthood abortion center. Although, the Planned Parenthood event has now been taken off their website,...

Nadler is set to take over as judiciary chairman as a result of Democrats flipping the House in Tuesday’s midterm elections. Nadler claimed in one call that “there’s a real indication that Kavanaugh committed perjury,” claiming...
